Outdoors & Gardens | Perfect pools
With the clients requesting a swimming pool that created the main focal point of the outdoor
area, Denise Staffa of Outside In began to think completely outside of the box to create not only
a swimming pool but an amazing water feature as well.
While it took the clients a little while to adapt to the idea of raising the pool out of the ground,
the result is nothing short of spectacular. Denise engaged Sam from Future Pools for the build,
which also features ledges to sit on, and an outdoor shower to rinse off, post-swim.
Mosaic tiles for the pool and an infinity edge were sourced by the client for a polished look,
while timber decking around the pool area finishes the seamless, resort-style look and feel.

A great example of how the effective design and
use of lighting can completely transform
a space at night, this outdoor space by Tim Davies
Landscape Architecture is a feast for the eyes.
Highlighting the different materials
and colours used within the landscape,
a variety of lighting opportunities were
taken up in the deck, tree uplights and side
lighting to the timber screens, as well as a light
installed above the pool.
While this suspended light is a feature in
itself, the glow of the pool, reflection of the tree
on its surface, and the wash of light over the
timber screen is what it is really all about. Tim
